Season 2010 almost over
 

Season 2010 is almost over.

Champions League Final places confirmed with The Special One getting one over Barcelona and the Germans back in the final. 

Premier League is going to the wire.  Chelsea in the driving seat but still have to over come Liverpool at the weekend.  Would Liverpool really do bitter rivals Manchester United a favour and at the same time hand over the title of most successful team.  Surely not!
Portsmouth down, Burnley down and Hull down.  No real surprises other than to say well done to Wolves and Birmingham for holding on to their Premier League status for another season.  Particularly well done to Birmingham who have done it with ease.

The Championship offered no surprises with regard the automatic spots.  Newcastle won it in a canter and were followed very comfortably by West Brom. Play off spot secured by Nottingham Forest and Cardiff as predicted as well as Leicester (well done in the first season back).  Blackpool hold the final spot and need a win against Bristol City to secure the place.  If not Swansea can take the final spot if they win at home to Doncaster.  Blackpool v Bristol City should be a real specticle with Ian Holloway (ex Bristol Rovers player and Manager....rejected Bristol City as a youth player) relying on a victory against the enemy to secure a play off spot.
At the bottom Peterborough make a quick return followed unsurprisingly by Plymouth and either Sheff Wednesday or Crystal Palace.  What a last day cracker with Palace going to Sheff Wed.  A draw keeps palace in the Championship.  Ultimately both teams in control of their own destiny. 

Another great season.  Bring on the World cup.

Rangers in Administration
 

How can one of the top two teams in Scotland end up in Administration?  Why are football clubs so badly run?  There is so much greed in football this is why clubs like Rangers and Portsmouth end up in Administration.

I am a Bristol City supporter and I would hate to see my club in administration or go bust and disappear but why is it the football clubs are immune from normal business practices?  We are in a recession that has seen some well known, well loved brands disappear from our high streets, so why are football clubs allowed to continue.  It is about time the government stopped stepping in and allowed clubs to go bust and disappear.  That has to be the only way to get the message out to the rest of the operators of the football clubs that this is a business and must be run like one.  Need to learn to balance the books and stop paying ludicruios wages to average players.

I don't want to see anyone's club go bust but at the same time this nonsense must stop.
